Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Bill first met the Doctor when she was working in a canteen in 'The Pilot'. Which establishment did she work in?

Answer: A university

Bill worked in a canteen at St Luke's university, a fictional place in real-world Bristol. In her spare time, she attended the Doctor's lectures. He noticed her and offered to tutor her, even though she wasn't actually a student.

Martha was a medical student working in a hospital in series three. Rose was working in a department store when she first met the Doctor in series one, and she also worked undercover in the kitchen of a school for an episode of series two. Clara worked in a school, as well. She was an English teacher at Coal Hill.
2. In 'Smile', the Doctor offered to take Bill on an adventure. Where did Bill want to go?

Answer: She wanted to go into the future.

The Doctor took Bill to one of the first planets colonised by humans from Earth. When they arrived, the planet was deserted. There were buildings and robots, but the start-up crew appeared to have vanished. The Doctor later found them on the compost heap...
3. The Doctor took Bill to the last frost fair on the River Thames in 1814. There were merchants, performers, and even an elephant. Which city did they go to in 'Thin Ice'?

Answer: London

February 1st 1814 saw the beginning of the final frost fair on the River Thames in London. Stalls were set up on the frozen river. They sold gingerbread, tea, coffee, hot chocolate, gin, and souvenirs. There was dancing, sledging, and bowling. The party lasted four days before the ice began to thaw.

After 1814, winters in London became milder. An old bridge that obstructed the flow of the river was demolished, and the Embankment was constructed, making the Thames flow faster. All of these factors meant that the Thames never froze for as long or as completely as it did in 1814. That was the last frost fair in London.
4. 'Knock Knock' took place in a house that Bill and a group of students were renting. What was unusual about the house?

Answer: It was infested with cockroach-like creatures.

Bill moved into the house with a group of university students. When she got her own room, she unpacked a photo of her mom and showed her where she was living, hoping that her mom would be have been proud of her.

The house in 'Knock Knock' had a number of flaws. It was almost exclusively made of creaking wood, had outdated sockets, and had no washing machine. The biggest problem, however, was the infestation of Dryads in the woodwork. It was revealed that the Dryads were responsible for the disappearance of lots of people spanning a number of decades.
5. 'Oxygen' explored the potential consequences of capitalist space exploration. Bill, the Doctor, and Nardole had to constantly check how much oxygen they were using: it was a commodity that had to be bought. Where were they?

Answer: A deep-space mining station

The Doctor received a distress call from a mining space station. When they arrived onboard, most of the crew were dead, but remained active within their robotic spacesuits. The company that owned the mining station also owned the oxygen. No one could survive outside a spacesuit (as the Doctor quickly found out when they arrived).

Some suits were offline. Those that were online received a signal from the company to 'deactivate' their 'organic component' due to decreased productivity. It was cheaper for the company to kill the workforce, than allow them to continue working.
6. I'll tell you where Bill was. She was in her flat when the Pope arrived. She went to the Vatican, the Pentagon in Virginia, CERN in Geneva, and the Oval Office in Washington DC. At least that's where she though she was. In 'Extremis', where was she really?

Answer: She was inside a computer simulation of Earth.

The Monks had created a simulation of Earth to find its weaknesses and determine whether they could invade the planet. The Veritas document (Latin for 'truth') described a simple test that could prove life in that reality was not real. The test was based on the idea that a computer cannot create a completely random string of numbers. Veritas invited you to write a sequence of random numbers on one page and then turn it over. If you wrote the exact same sequence of 'random' numbers on the other side of the page, you would known you were inside a simulation. Nardole worked out what was happening when he and Bill found a projection room. He compared the projections to video game worlds in which all the people are just characters created by the computer.

Amy was a Flesh duplicate during some episodes in series six - she was actually pregnant onboard a space station. When she finally 'awoke', she was about to give birth to Melody (River Song).
7. The Monks made themselves known globally in 'The Pyramid at the End of the World'. In which fictional country (introduced in 'The Zygon Invasion') did the pyramid appear?

Answer: Turmezistan

The monks offered to prevent a global disaster on Earth, but there was a catch. A human representative had to give consent. They had to agree willingly, without fear or stategic intent. The Doctor was in serious trouble at the end of the episode. Bill went into the pyramid and gave consent so that the Doctor would be saved.

Her action came from love, but had other disastrous consequences.
8. In 'Empress of Mars', Bill, Nardole and the Doctor ended up on Mars. Which Martian native race was also there?

Answer: Ice Warriors

An Ice Warrior crash landed on Earth at the end of the nineteenth century. A group of British soldiers rescued Friday, and in exchange he took them to Mars with the promise that they could mine its resources. That, however, was a lie. Friday wanted to revive Ice Empress Iraxxa, who was asleep in a tomb under the Martian ice caps.
9. The Doctor and Bill were arguing over what happened to the Roman Ninth Legion in the second century. Which modern-day country did they travel to in order to settle their dispute in 'The Eaters of Light'?

Answer: Scotland

In 'The Eaters of Light', a beast went through an interdimensional portal and appeared in second century Scotland. A Pict tribe was guarding a cairn that they had built around the portal to limit the number of creatures that could come through. Kar was one of the tribe. It was her job to fight the beast, but she had a different idea.

The Ninth Legion was attacking Kar's village. She allowed the creature to escape so that it would defeat the soldiers. It killed most of the Legion, but some of the soldiers ran away.
10. 'World Enough and Time' showed how the Cybermen began on a spaceship trying to escape from a black hole. Which planet did the spaceship originate from?

Answer: Mondas

Bill landed on a colony ship with Nardole and Missy (who was pretending to be the Doctor to demonstrate how much she had changed). Almost as soon as they arrived, some creatures appeared in a lift and took Bill away because she was human.

The Doctor tried to figure out a way to save her. Not only had she been shot in the chest by the last remaining crewmember, but the black hole was affecting time onboard the ship. The Doctor and his friends were right at the front, where time was moving much slower than at the end of the 400 mile-long ship, which was where Bill had been taken. It took the Doctor about ten minutes to get to Bill, but she had been trapped in a hospital for years by the time he arrived in the lift.

It wasn't until they landed at the end of the ship, that the Doctor and Missy realised where the colony ship had come from: Mondas. The crew's descendants - and Bill - had been converted into Cybermen. The Cybermen were introduced in the First Doctor story, 'The Tenth Planet'. They came from Earth's twin planet, Mondas. The First Doctor regenerated at the end of 'The Tenth Planet', and the Twelfth Doctor began to regenerate at the end of this two-part story in 'The Doctor Falls'. Both Doctors met at the South Pole in the middle of their regenerations, leading into the 2017 Christmas special, 'Twice Upon a Time'.
